I remember there are some very steep trail sections with unprotected cliff edges on one of the hikes, particularly in the Rocky Valley section and near Tintagel Castle. You can opt out of that day's hike and enjoy a quiet day exploring the area around the hotel, or maybe the hike leaders would have a good option for you. Most of the Cornwall hikes are along the coastline on farmland well back from the edge. We enjoyed this program very much.

Richard Peterson Nov 17, 2015 at 12:03 PM

We would love to do this trip, but I have a paralyzing fear of cliff edges. On the Cornwall walks, were there any high ledges that we would traverse?
Sue Gray Nov 17, 2015 at 04:12 PM

Richard, I did not go as I didn't find anyone to go with. Wish I could have!

Sue Gray Jul 11, 2015 at 03:18 PM

Are there any singles going in Sept or Oct?

Sue Gray Jun 30, 2015 at 08:08 AM

I am looking for anyone planning on going in September.
Steve Reagan Jul 11, 2015 at 12:07 PM

Steve and Alice are going on Sept 15
Alice Van Deusen Sep 04, 2015 at 07:43 AM

Fred and Alice are going on September 15 as well! Where are you folks from?
Steve Reagan Sep 04, 2015 at 08:46 AM

We are from Oklahoma. And You? We have begun the pre-packing! Have been watching the weather forecast and the low to mid 60's look great.
Alice Van Deusen Sep 04, 2015 at 01:36 PM

We are from the Boston area. That weather sounds perfect. I am into making lists and Fred is into checking his camera. We are both excited and looking forward to this trip!

Nancy Blethen May 12, 2015 at 04:32 PM

Curious as to who is participating in the Sept 1st trip!
Sharon Michaels Apr 14, 2015 at 11:15 PM

Hi Karen-
Sharon Michaels Apr 14, 2015 at 11:16 PM

My husband and I will be on the Sept. 1st program. Have you been on other Road Scholar programs?
Karen M Apr 14, 2015 at 11:23 PM

Hi Sharon! Yes, this will be my fifth RS trip. I have taken three by myself (Big Bend Nat'l Park, Ozarks, Lafayette, LA/Habitat service trip. My husband is doing his first trip with me in about a week...Lewis & Clark trip in MO...
Sharon Michaels Apr 15, 2015 at 02:06 PM

Nice to chat with a fellow RS traveler. We're really looking forward to this trip. We've done 7 other RS trips: 3 hiking (Canadian Rockies, Zion & Brice Nat'l Parks and Death Valley) and 4 exploring (NY city, Chicago, Santa Fe, N.M., and Costa Rica.) This will be my 1st visit to the UK. We fly out of San Francisco. How about you?

Same to you, Sharon :). I am so excited about this trip as well! It is even on my "list of life things to do". I will be flying out of DFW (Dallas, TX). Your RS trips sound wonderful. I especially love the hiking trips. I have Zion, Bryce, Canyonlands trip on my wish list....maybe next year! I also want to do the Grand Canyon Rim to River some day.

Recent participants: Any comments about the meat vs vegetarian meal option?
Linda Long Oct 10, 2014 at 02:16 PM

I picked the vegetarian option for one meal in Cornwall and it was too spicy for my taste. I designated meat in my paper work and that seemed like a good choice. Enjoy this fantastic trip!
